This includes the hydrodynamic and hydrostatic characteristics of the hull, as well as a hull's structural and functional arrangements. Naval Architecture calculations include strength and stability analyses, as well as resistance and performance prediction studies. Many other design and engineering efforts required for vessel construction including Engineering Analysis and Marine Surveying are also performed by The Shearer Group, Inc.

We utilize Orca Marine's CFD software program to conduct resistance studies on vessel hulls of all forms. This is especially useful when looking to optimize the vessel's hull form to improve fuel economy. The difference in a few percentage points of resistance can lead to significant savings for vessel operators over the vessel's life. We have used our CFD capabilities to conduct comparative studies of barges, tugs, towboats, and ATB units.

Using the latest FEA software and techniques, we are able to analyze existing projects as well as our own original designs. An analysis is possible for the entire vessel or for only certain areas of interest, such as a foundation that is expected to experience high loads.

This can include main engines and auxiliary prime movers, generators, electrical systems, cargo heating systems, vapor control systems, cargo transfer systems (including pumps), ballast systems, fire main systems, potable and fresh water systems, sewage systems, etc. Marine engineers primarily design and specify the equipment that can be found in the main engine room and auxiliary machinery spaces of a vessel. The Shearer Group, Inc.'s marine engineering practice focuses on the design of new vessels, but our engineers also work on repowerings, vapor control systems, and mechanical and electrical upgrades.
